Year 6 returned to Easton Lodge Gardens for another inspiring visit which opened up a wealth of history on their own doorstep. The children met with the Trustees and explored the gardens looking for clues about stories of the past, including two devastating fires, an elephant, and a cheeky monkey as well as the fascinating story of Daisy, the Countess of Warwick herself.
In the afternoon they met with Ann-Marie Howell, a major children’s author whose book ‘The Garden of Lost Secrets’ has just been published. The children learned great writing tips from Ann-Marie and are now looking forward to creating their own books inspired by her visit and the history of the Gardens themselves. The books will be on display on 20th October at the Gardens’ last open day of 2019.
